Loaded Question Brewing is founded on the belief that great beer mimics life and that every beer has its place. Our favorite beer is not a single beer, it is all the beers. Our beer of choice changes with the season, the time of day, the weather, and the crew we’re hanging with. When the color, flavor, body, and aroma of the beer match the moment, it enriches the experience. Loaded Question is dedicated to understanding the infinite possibilities of craft beer and making memorable moments with our fellow beer lovers.

    Stopped in on a run between Boston and Bar Harbor. Nice little place pretty close to the highway in New Hampshire. Very inviting unpretentious atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and the better was decent. We enjoyed our time here.

    Passing through Portsmouth, NH on our way back from Maine, we decided to stop and try out a brewery. We chose Loaded Question. I was pleasantly surprised after a few others in the area that had some of what I call microbrewery aftertaste! (MBAT)! Not their brews. They are well balanced for the style. We are looking forward to returning and making this one of our stops.

    Loaded question serves a very diverse list of beers. Great environment, fun setting with outdoor and indoors options. To go options and draft to consume on site. Just go and give them a try you won't be disappointed and they are open 7 days a week. What a plus!!

    Off the beaten path brewery that has some great beer! We showed up with 7 kids between two families and their outdoor space was perfect for us. Fast, amazing service.

    LQ has terrific beers with a constant variety of rotating drafts. I really appreciate that they take a chance on brewing less common styles but they still make sure to have a few IPAs and sours always available. They also sell non-alcoholic beers by can for those who aren’t beer drinkers. Their space is a jaunt away from the hustle of downtown Portsmouth and you’d do yourself a favor to head away from downtown and visit. They have a super cozy bar and outdoor seating to accommodate people everyone. Their looming hallway which surprisingly opens up into a lively, bright taproom is an experience all on its own! The real draw for LQ is that they are a hub of community with constant events with something for everyone: a trivia night, a run club, a book club, open mic, a calligraphy meet up, and more including regularly hosting special events related to the city and community at large. Don’t skip them!
